Vangeline Theater is home to the New York Butoh Institute.
The New York Butoh Institute is dedicated to the advancement of Butoh in the 21st century, with a special emphasis on education, research and archiving.
The New York Butoh Institute is dedicated to researching the wide range of physical and psychological benefits of Butoh dance. We are interested in the impact of Butoh on health and well being, and in documenting what happens in the brain of people dancing butoh, as well as the effect of Butoh dance on viewers.
OUR NEXT PROJECT:
Brain Mapping for Butoh
New imaging technologies now allow researchers to document the brain activity of Butoh dancers, and research centers are well equipped to study Butoh training and its broader neurological implications. The New York Butoh Institute is pioneering a scientific study of the brain activity of butoh dancers in the US and abroad.
